Genres: Contemporary Romance

I absolutely loved this book, not only for the romantic storyline between hero and heroine but also because of the brothers and the familial aspect that came together with the final book in the series.
Like his brothers, Jacob is all charm and irresistible in nature and who has no intention of staying in sugar loaf. His charm is amplified as he interacts with her kids and takes on helping at the school. Jacob’s pursuit of Brenna will have readers swooning for sure, as he loves her kids as much as he loves her.
Brenna was a bit of a mixed bag for me. I did enjoy her character overall, and I liked that she continued to keep her kids are the forefront of her mind. That being said, I didn’t like the way she seemed to put down her relationship with her previous husband. It generally bothers me when this position is taken by a character. I am not personally of the mind that there is only one great, and even if that is the case, I never love when a heroine negatively talks about an ex, especially when that isn’t the position at the beginning of the novel.
The story progression is good overall in terms of pacing. The connection reads authentically, and I liked the conflict that developed as the novel progressed. While I liked the influence of conflict on all the characters, and it does make sense for the couple, it felt a bit like déjà vu. I did love the ending, though. It gave me all the good, heartwarming feelings.
Overall, this is a great standalone series. It has all the sweeping romance, small town vibes, delivering all the swoon-worthy moments.
From New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels comes the final poignant love story in the Arrowood Brothers Series.
Hollywood taught me everything I know about relationships–except how to be in one. As an actor, I became an expert at faking it. Faking that I wasn’t affected by my childhood. Faking that I was okay. Faking that I knew how to save the day, the girl, the whole damn world.
But I’ve always known the truth–I’m no one’s hero.
Until I’m forced to move back to Sugarloaf for six months, and Brenna Allen offers me a chance to prove otherwise. She’s everything I never knew I wanted, but can’t have. Her broken heart, perfect face, and adorable children turn my world upside down. Instead of preparing for my next leading role, I’m directing a middle school play.
All to make her smile.
The more time I spend here, the more I want to stay. Build a life in this town that I swore I’d leave–for her.
But when the world comes crashing down around us, I’m forced to decide if staying for her is the right choice or if leaving is better for the woman I love.
